Trips Around World by Martin Reddy

These examples illustrate capabilities provided by the X3D Abstract Specification Geospatial Component. Significant additional work is being pursued by the X3D Earth Working Group Executive Summary and is documented on the X3D Earth Working Group Wiki.

The supporting Geospatial Component - X3D Earth chapter slideset is available online via X3dGraphics.com.

X3D Scenes Descriptions
A 1 Geo Elevation Grid Specification example shows the use of the GeoElevationGrid and the GeoViewpoint nodes. A flat grid is mapped to the full extent of Earth latitude and longitude.
A 2 Animated Geo Viewpoint Specification example shows animated GeoViewpoint, using GeoPositionInterpolator between latitude/longitude locations for London, Paris, and New York.
A 3 Geo Inline Specification example: on-demand inlining via GeoInline for scene resource management.
A 4 Geo Location Specification example georeferencing VRML objects: display standard VRML cone at latitude/longitude location of Lossiemouth, Scotland.
A 5 Geo Origin Specification example shows use of GeoOrigin node to provide accurate geospatial positioning. When zooming, removes object jitter from reduced-precision floating point values.
Box Simple Box shape used as test scene for GeoInline/Inline loading and unloading.

Geospatial Coordinate Axes Nsew Example X Y Z axis arrows and labels in Geospatial coordinate system.
Geo Spatial Extern Proto Declarations GeoVrml Recommendation, Example 1: GeoElevation, using ExternProtoDeclare statements instead of GeoSpatial DTD.
Geo Touch Sensor Example This example shows the use of the GeoTouchSensor in order to retrieve the geographic coordinate that the user is pointing to. The scene displays a model of the earth built using a GeoElevationGrid, it then displays a red sphere at the point on the earth where the user is pointing to with the mouse, and also displays the latitude, longitude, and elevation at that point as a text label.

Mexico This GeoVRML scene was converted from an original ESRI Shape file by the Bashir Research ShapeViz tool. This particular example shows a number of layers for Mexico, including state boundaries, rivers, roads, lakes, and cities. The ShapeViz tool with GeoVRML export is freely available from http://www.my3d.com/ShapeViz.htm.

Squaw This model was output using the GeoVRML export capabilities of ESRI's 3D Analyst Extension for ArcView/ArcInfo 8.1 product (official release date Q1 2001). This example is created by combining an ortho image (retouched to have a blue color) with a DEM of the squaw valley, near Lake Tahoe. Coordinates are UTM.

Sri Campus This example shows a 3D model of the SRI International campus in Menlo Park, CA. All of the 152 buildings have been georeferenced to their actual location on the earth using GeoLocation nodes. These have been overlayed directly on a terrain model built using a GeoElevationGrid and 1m resolution USGS imagery.

Temple The temple example shows precise positioning of geometry using double-precision coordinates. See reference comparison page.
Temple No Origin Temple without GeoOrigin results in jittery locations due to floating-point roundoff error of geospatial position values.
Temple Origin Temple with GeoOrigin node coregisters columns to same reference frame, eliminating floating-point roundoff errors and avoiding jitter on column positions.
Temple Pretty Temple with nice Background.
Trips Around World This GeoVRML scene has a model of the earth which you can drag to rotate. Dotted on the surface of the planet are a number of pointers to places that I have travelled to recently, many with hyperlinks into my on-line photo album so you can see pictures of the places by just clicking on the red pointers. The GeoVRML for the pointers was generated automatically by the text2geovrml utility that is packaged with the tsmApi library.
Trips Model Individual trip locations and links, integrated as Inline into TripsAroundWorld.
World World selector for different vertical exaggeration and texturing.
World High World selector with high vertical exaggeration.
World Low World with standard vertical height values.
World Test Simple globe using GeoElevationGrid with drag/rotate capability.
World Test Solid Simple globe using GeoElevationGrid.
